|EYE by Abigail Sharp|
Abi is a wonderful, intuitive photographer who is stronger than you might first think and more talented than she realises. Her intention in this shoot, which took place on 15th January 2011, was to home in on my eyes. We found a location in our temporary house in Colgate in West Sussex and she homed in on my face until we got to this distance and she found what she was looking for.
I love it. The different colours in the eye and the direct stare. It seems at first an unemotional, blank look but it is not. It has soaked up all the hopes, doubts, warmth and tenderness in the air and thrown them back through the lens to Abi challenging her to capture them in a blink of a shutter which she has done marvellously.
Living is easy with eyes closed, misunderstanding all you see...
